Revenge of the the Sith Title Reaction


July 28, 2004

It's difficult to describe exactly what I was feeling as I sat among 6,500 other fans at the Star Wars Spectacular presentation at Comic-Con International July 24, 2004, moments before the title for Episode III, Revenge of the Sith, was revealed. The closest example I can give you is take the feeling you have in the countdown before New Years and multiply it by a thousand. Then you'll have a general idea of how I was feeling.

The announcement caught me off guard. I would have never expected that the title would be released at Comic-Con, and especially not this early. Nevertheless, here I was, one of the first 6,500 people in the world to discover the title of the final Star Wars movie. I'm overjoyed and honored that I had the privilege to be present during the title's unveiling. I was actually there. It still hasn't sunk in yet.

Speaking of "not sunk in," I know I'm not alone in saying that four days later, the title Revenge of the Sith has a new car smell to me. It's so strange and unfamiliar, and doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the trilogy. I know that these sentiments will pass in time, but still.

For the record I do, in fact, think that Revenge of the Sith is a fitting name for the final installment of the prequel trilogy. After all, the fall of Anakin, as well as his (and Palpatine's) revenge on the Jedi and the Republic is what the prequel trilogy is all about, just as much as the classic trilogy's purpose is to relate the story of Luke's destiny, Anakin's return to the light side, and the return of the Jedi way of life.

So I guess the point I'm trying to get to is the Revenge of the Sith title is a winner in my book. Also, I'd have to say that, "I have a good feeling about this" movie. I'll wrap this baby up by saying here's to May 2005!
